Apology

Apology

in EPUB, anche disponibile per Kindle o in PDF

(The) Apology (of Socrates) is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defends himself against the charges of being a man "who corrupted the young, did not believe in the gods, and created new deities". "Apology" here has its earlier meaning (now usually expressed by the word "apologia") of speaking in defense of a cause or of one's beliefs or actions (from the Greek απολογία).

I love that Socrates had the audacity to ask for a stipend as his punishment for "corrupting the youth".
